Karva Chauth: Red fashion tip from Ananya Panday, Sidharth Malhotra, other stars

North India’s highly romanticised festival of Karva Chauth is just on our doorstep and if you feel yourself in a fashion fix, take sartorial tips from Ananya Panday, Katrina Kaif, Sidharth Malhotra, Varun Dhawan and other Bollywood celebrities. The festival calls for solah shringar or sixteen traditional makeup steps to be on-point for the ladies but why should men be left behind? 

Women observe a nirjala vrat which means they fast from sunrise to moonrise on this day and pray for long and healthy lives of their husbands. The end of nirjala vrat is marked by worshipping the moon when the husband feeds food and water to the wife to finally break the fast.

This festival is celebrated with great pomp and show in the Indian states of Haryana, Rajasthan, Punjab, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh. Since this year, Karva Chauth will be celebrated by the Hindu community on October 24, here are some celebrities-inspired fusion styles and ethnic looks in red to recreate when you step out for the traditional events.
